Vision Benefits

In addition to protecting your eyesight, regular eye exams can also lead to early detection of other diseases, like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Vision benefits are provided through VSP. Collective Health will send you an ID card.

Retailers such as Costco, Visionworks and Cohen's Fashion Optical are included in VSP's retail chain providers, and services from these providers are considered in-network. See a complete list of VSP's retail chain providers at
